What does the building offer?

  1. There is a main hall which can accommodate up to 140 people, with professional and robust Amtico flooring. There is a choice of either round or rectangular tables for seated events. There is a kitchen adjoining the main hall which is very well equipped and contains sufficient china, cutlery and glassware for 140 place settings.
  2. There is a smaller hall which is still spacious and versatile, with carpets and a kitchenette area. This is ideal for meetings and gatherings of up to 50 people.
  3. In addition there is a lounge area and a separate IT room which can be hired separately.

Since the hall opened 5 years ago residents of Chartham (and beyond) have had opportunities to join in a wide variety of activities. These include very well attended weekly Mother and Toddler groups, Bingo, Line Dancing, Hip Hop dance class, Yoga class, a Youth Club and Slimming Groups, etc.

To find out what’s on see the weekly list of activities displayed on the noticeboard in the porch area at the front of the hall.
